About the Movie

Determined not to remain on the lowest rung of the social ladder during his first year of middle school, a skinny middle child takes several stabs at becoming popular -- Including betraying his seemingly uncool best friend -- But when his efforts backfire spectacularly, he decides that keeping a low profile isn't such a bad idea after all.

Top Critics' Reviews

Rotten: Looks drab and drained of color, and can't even muster the antic buoyancy of an average episode of iCarly. – A.O. Scott, New York Times, Jul 7, 2010

Fresh: The young cast is all game, and sidekicks Robert Capron and Grayson Russell are a real hoot. Slumber party viewings are inevitable. – Joe Neumaier, New York Daily News, Jun 24, 2010

Rotten: The problem with Diary of a Wimpy Kid is the wimpy kid is a jerk. – Tom Long, Detroit News, Jun 24, 2010

Fresh: What sets this kid comedy apart is how well it resists the temptation to clobber the bullies and crown the underdog. – Nancy Churnin, Dallas Morning News, Jul 7, 2010
